Amid the many memes and jokes over Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s wink and hug to Prime Minister Modi during the no-confidence motion debate on Friday, July 20, came the reaction of actor Priya Prakash Varrier who claims Rahul Gandhi had “copied” the wink, which is her signature move.
Varrier was delighted to learn that Gandhi had “copied” her signature move in the parliament.
“I’ve come back from college to see the news that Rahul Gandhi has winked at our Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the parliament. He has greeted him with the wink which is a very sweet gesture and I’m very happy that it was my signature move in the movie where I started off. So, yeah, today I’m very happy,” she actor Varrier.
It all started when Congress President Rahul Gandhi launched a series of attacks at Modi-led BJP in his speech during the no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha. Although Gandhi made a piercing speech, but took the parliament to surprise when he walked to the other side, shook hands with Narendra Modi and then hugged him.

However, Gandhi didn’t stop there. He followed his hug with a wink in the parliament and it became a topic of discussion in media.
Priya Prakash Varrier had shot to overnight fame with her wink in the viral song ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’. Earlier this year, a short clip from Malayalam movie ‘Oru Adaar Love’ started doing the rounds on the Internet. Composed by Shaan Rahman, the video resonated with many and soon went viral.
